Do you think these could be real. i don't want to take the paper off back to look for numbers because it is so old:) anything you know would help..Thank you PS there are a lady in a pinkish hat with waiters behind her and 2nd one is a lady and what looks like beside a pond.. beautiful pictures

Answer
Dear Heidi,

I unfortunately cannot tell you if they are real but I can tell you that Cherry Jeffe Huldah's oil's sell between $170 to $1,000 these days depending on image, size, and condition. If you want to tell if the works are real, you might want to contact a gallery that sells his works as they will have the necessary knowledge. In doing a quick search one gallery came up called Kodner Gallery: http://www.kodnergallery.com/   . Best of luck.
